This year, we are continuing to support visionary artists and curators who are making space for some of the most current and pressing conversations happening in our community today around race, identity, gender, class, family, incarceration, and immigration, immersing audiences in live theater, dance, spoken word, aerial arts, film, puppetry and more. We are honored to be partnering with ground-breaking artists, curators and groups including Tru Ruts Endeavors, Maia Maiden, Justin Schell, Free Black Dirt, and 20% Theatre Company Twin Cities, in addition to our ongoing work with young people and creative leadership.
In 2014, we provided high-quality artistic programming to more than 26,000 participants, including 3,015 youth, and 1,683 artists. We partnered with 69 local arts and community organizations and served an additional 23 groups and organizations through rentals of our facility. We presented 14 weeks of performances, 33 weeks of exhibitions, 196 days of in school and after school programming, and provided in-depth training to 50 community leaders advancing change across our state.
This remarkable year could never have happened without the creative thinking, passion, commitment, and support of our community. As we look towards the future of Intermedia Arts, we thank you for helping us inspire social change through the arts for thousands of Minnesotans each year.
